telling her just don't sleep don't sleep there was panic and horror in the street need to be released some time to find an ambulance for the girl. i rushed to the ambulances but they told me they only take grown ups and that i have to wait for the children's emergency to arrive i apologize now but i thought that time i broke down i started yelling at them swearing and finally they took her. as soon as transportation was possible the youngest victims of the volga grad terror attacks were delivered here to the childrens clinic hospital in moscow and currently doctors are battling to save their lives doctors say the girl has damage to her lungs how mother is with her at the hospital and her condition is stable but serious as the first shock of what happened fade it all disappear and started to look for their daughter's rescuer they even posters or call for help on a social network. please help us identify the man who carried our oil out of the

a pole car bomb attack which left several dead so in quick succession we've seen three quite significant terrorist attacks targeting civilians and in particular the transport infrastructure and i think this is designed to really heighten the psychological impact of these attacks which we assess partly designed to try and create a sense of insecurity ahead of the winter olympic games to be held in sochi in february. on our website we've got investigators latest findings and opinions on who possibly staged the horrifying attack and what the terrorists might think they came also you'll be able to keep up to date on survivors conditions in hospital. rights groups say the situation in the central african republic is out of control amid horrifying reports of children being beheaded thousands of international troops are in the country but i fail to halt the bloodshed instead their presence appears to have emboldened christians mobs which are now lynching muslims in the
capital riff an ocean outlines what's at stake for france in this conflict. less than a year after french moods marched into mali france again is fighting in another of its food and colonies in africa. let's address the situation in the central african republic is alarming if not frightening that you. paris received a green light from the u.n. security council to use military force to restore order after deadly ethnic russians in the country escalated. i have decided to act immediately or more precisely this very evening this eight hundred french soldiers were sent to the violence torn country to join the six hundred already deployed there. a force that france has no other motive than to save human lives a month later and lives are still being lost on all sides. france's sixteen hundred
strong force appeared and mabel to put an end to ethnic tensions dating back to the central african republic independence in one thousand nine hundred sixty four through france of former monopoly is responsible for helping to create in africa a number of totally artificial states like ca are and now they jump in with this operation which is stupid militarily economically and politically dangerous scandalous from a human perspective and lead to zero results that zero results if we are talking bringing stability to the country but alan creepin president of france is new and capitalist party believes there is more to paris's decision to intervene that there was your fourth fifth france used the pretext of human rights but in fact it was aimed at protecting its economic interests the c.a.r. is rich in resources but it mostly has value due to its strategic location in the
center of a vast and rich area so it's eventually all about dominating and controlling the entire region. but others see the african country central location on the continent as the key to fulfill the stated goals of the french military mission of securing the entire region. france and other european countries are threatened by islamic radical and terrorist groups that are now decentralized and developed in the belt from the mercian timi a coast to somalia. and french troops deter these dangerous forces and also prevent pirates and drug traffickers from uniting which would both critics and advocates of the french military operation in the central african republic it clearly agree on is that no matter what the intentions are behind france's authorities decision to get involved it's the french people footing the bill that was the operation only became needed as there was a failure of diplomacy and politics in the ca are
a failure of the un the african union economic community of central african states and the you know who pays for this pricey campaign french taxpayers surveys show less than half of the french population support their country's latest michu expedition to africa pushed forward by france's least popular president in pollen history why more than a thousand french soldiers are now in the central african republic here in paris the intervention into the country's former colony still gets a mixed reaction no one's really sure if it's an act of goodwill or a calculated move to benefit friends. whereas russian are reporting from paris. well bernard rescued from the institute of oriental languages and civilizations says there is particular significance in when france decided to act for it before the central africa world. french influence since they became
independent through french army and soon central africa second point is the former central african president was kicked out from power just at the moment when he signed agreement with chinese. companies dime france didn't react and it is very important to. chinese economy is growing economy and it's. much more active in africa. all the western economies and i think that's one of the reasons of conflicts in africa now it's to completion between western powers and china. with the holiday season almost over apple's posting of huge cells of a thai phone what my concern new owners of the device is that the n.s.a.

knock a stranger unconscious with a single punch a feared phenomenon across the nation the ongoing brutality has claimed lives in at least three u.s. states here in new york city more than ten people have been randomly assaulted among the youngest a twelve year old student among the oldest seventy six year old woman was walking along warman avenue when a man struck her in the head this man too scared to show his face on camera says he was attacked last month while walking home from work surrounded me one of them as i tried to get away one of them stepped out towards me and. with the close is the face in some cases suspects have been arrested and charged however exacerbating the problem these videos uploaded on you tube have been viewed by millions raising concerns about copycat attacks many knockouts have taken place in
broad daylight as victims were walking through their own neighborhoods and as the n.y.p.d. a department of thirty four thousand officers continue struggling to curb this string of violence citizens are seeking alternatives to stay safe. former n.y.p.d. officer rabbi gary moskowitz is offering his seventh degree black belt skills for free to knock out victims and others seeking protection we're going to someone who works worker you must learn how to be aware you must learn how to fight if some girls were time for the knockout attacks are for him and for him ready to moskowitz believes are likely motivated by gang initiation something the n.y.p.d. hasn't officially acknowledged if ignored because the guy who had a problem is they have to really try to curb the gun from they can't do that so for three or so a long time they don't want to put a name on something right away because if they put a name one of them they have to go away or through our t. reached out to the n.y.p.d. to find out what america's most powerful police department is doing to combat the
knockout epidemic our questions and interview requests were ignored it is not fair to any poor form to be able to be a foreign to everybody in the shrewd they can't protect. us from new york city struve the big apple's mass surveillance system does actually allow officials to know where and when many of the crimes are occurring but so far filming the knockouts hasn't helped to prevent them marina. new york. on line we tell you about the cost cutting clean up at fukushima for dead robots and newfangled machines duct tape was apparently one of the not so high tech. that used to strap the leaking plant back together. also at ardsley dot com factory workers in cambodia feel the full wrath of authorities is their demands for higher pay and new elections are met with bullets and batons.
opens new year's day britain's been braced for a flood but this is nothing to do with the storms battering the country right now the u.k. fears a massive influx of eastern europeans now that e.u. wide immigration rules are relaxed and is probably boyko reports people's biggest concerns are a wave of unskilled workers and criminals leading up to the new year the british government hadn't released any estimates about the number of remain ians i am told gary and that they expected to arrive in britain now that immigration restrictions have been lifted for them. since he hasn't done much to allay the fears of the british public. and although romanians and bulgarians now have every right to live and work freely anywhere within the european union euro skepticism and public concern say the mass
immigration a written all time high what are you currently doing to stop the influx of non skilled workers in from the e.u. and upon into do we've made absolutely sure that it's not possible for people to come here simply to claim benefits to a putting a brace very tough measures in controls but the latest report by the institute of public policy research dismissed these as symbolic gestures saying that person can cope with very maybe an ample garion migration according to the paper instead of alarming the public the government merely needs to implement some minor contingency measures in order to help schools and housing stretch this deadline has been known about for precisely seven years so the idea that we should be rushing around panicking about it now it's completely absurd it's quite important for politicians to step back and explain that it is not the end of the world but on the whole
immigration and indeed free movement within europe and you know been quite beneficial to the u.k. economy remaining in diplomats to say that their citizens are deeply offended by that portrayal as scroungers and criminals in the u.k. press they point out that most of their citizens are hardworking and will contribute to british society something that economists had a happy to back up all the available evidence is the migration to britain has been on a positive both in terms of cultural and richmond and economic enlargement we have to remember that one point six million britons british nationals are working throughout the year and they enjoy the benefits of that so if we start setting up you shouldn't draw benefits from migrants we can expect a quick cool cool despite the politicians tough talk in the tabloid headlines fears of a flood of migrants have been dismissed as nonsense and according to remain in officials
most of their countrymen would prefer to live in spain or italy anyway. judging by the weather here who can blame them. i see. the recent polls are just a quarter of britain's you mean safeguarding their borders from unwanted migrants the deputy leader of the u.k. independence party of palm noddle believes that's the only solution this is critical here is that they can come here from april office not january the first and claim benefits from that and it's a noncontributory system so quite frankly they can call here and they can claim some welfare but are over putting into the system that the reason why we're having to do it is because of the european union the freedom of movement of people does written into the e.u. treaties which are concerned by labor governments and conservative governments so there's no point crying about it now the only way we can deal with this problem is by leaving the european union and if people want to protest and if people want to go out there and vote against the you can do so by voting for the party which wants
to leave and that you keep on may the twenty second this year in the european elections. russia has been making every effort to make sochi a shining jam for the twenty fourteen olympics but what does it take to brighten all the stadiums and venues in the depths of winter darkness to bang mazzei looks at the work that's been done into making an illuminating spectacle in sochi. the eyes of the world will be on sochi come february the seventh and frantic work has been going on behind the scenes to make sure the lifting venue sparkle not just for the crowds but for millions of t.v. viewers around the world for the lighting technicians it's been a mess of undertaking lush media for us this is one of a kind technology and design in the world that isn't even the manufacturers who initially claimed it was similar to some other models that have finally admitted our installations are totally unique in other words this is an experimental model
that will set a benchmark for the whole world this electric cocktail lighting was months in the making the olympic committee found the brightest and best engineers who came up with a unique design for every stadium l.e.d. lights was selected footage or ability they made to last for a century but also for their college changing wall factor. such installations are temporary solution for various sports competitions but this one is hopefully going to stay for quite some time it is based on the cutting edge technology and totally new software that the world has yet to a dog. off to dog the park stadium becomes a scene not worrying ice storms and tumbling snowflakes the ice back sports palace turns into a giant aquamarine wave the atlas skating rina the neon giant was shimmering rainbow colors the first stadium will be hosting the opening and closing ceremonies

spying antics it was also reported that the agency bugs computers from the moment they contact connect to the internet and if any electronic device somehow resists wholesale surveillance they're apparently specialized and that's a teams ready to hack it manually journalist david seaman believes global tech companies should gear up for massive backlash. my understanding of it is that this is extremely widespread but is not so much the companies cooperating with the n.s.a. as it is the n.s.a. pouring tremendous amounts of money and talent into developing these hacks we're talking about complete orwellian control of innocent people's phones and innocent people's computers and laptops and i think that it undermines basic faith and confidence in american tech companies this is going to lead to a massive loss of revenue technology has the power to lift all of us up to provide more innovation and transparency that ever before in human history and that's the
path that the internet was already on you see the explosion in online media and everybody has a voice in opinion in this global society but the n.s.a. has destroyed a lot of that it's undermined basic faith in the internet they call it the mandela situation that following the death of the anti apartheid icon genocide against white people in african countries is inevitable and a group of activists who claim to have eight hundred thousand followers doesn't plan to do nothing pothier visited one family making preparations for the worst. most of the black people say as soon as mandela dies all little white people are going to die like flies the duplicity family live in south africa's improvement on the problems in a predominantly white neighborhood they belong to a group called to say founders who convinced it's only a matter of time before the country's white population is slaughtered by the black majority they've just full of supplies in preparation for d.-day so we had together
nuff a deal and feel for of a different vehicles we get another fuel to use to last us about a thousand five hundred kilometers gas storage it's going to go on our vehicles that is for making food and keeping warm then. prep myself with some cereal some pastors rice all that's kind of stuff that can last a long time then we've got some crates of food as well we've got a water purifying so idea that will take us when we get to a place that is no freshwater dion's be preparing for seven years while most south africans watched mandela's funeral with sadness he monitored it with concern for everybody that needs to be found and how it's missing through shelley can start evacuation plan. we are here i'm prepping for anarchy and this place is a ticking time bomb and it's threats like this that they don't take seriously right now only fifty thousand white families own more than eighty percent of the lead in
south africa and that land was taken by arms were stored in some black people we wanted to attend to the black majority militant black youth are calling on white citizen colonialists to leave the country we are evacuating to our first assembly point just outside of town and my prediction is that they're going to close this rodeo for us are we gonna leave town. they're going to boxes in but we've got another good. guys there's a lot of traffic a lot of commotion going on to be able to watch out check the traffic. and be aware . there's a lot of people that's going to die. on the day of the real evacuation people will assemble here from all surrounding towns then they'll move on to a permanent location with base if need be for you. this is my country i was born here. just give me what i what i want for me my family to grow up
and have some opportunities in life that's all i want but most often africans think is exaggerated south africa belongs to everyone who live. in it black and white that is world renowned constitution that takes there for but even if his preparation is in vain it's better to be safe than sorry and so while mandela's passing heralds the end of an era a minority of white south africans are fearing a future as bleak and as gloomy as the dark years of apartheid. south africa. well as the troubles of a russian vessel stuck in sea ice have confirmed life's tough and i am tired took up next on our two we join another crew as they show us just how hard it can be.
